By  | 

Dothan and Houston County leaders are busy preparing to welcome hundreds of Chinese business executives to the Wiregrass.

The US China Manufacturing Symposium will be held in November.

On Tuesday, Sept. 24, a town hall will be held at the Dothan Opera House. Starting at 6 p.m. residents have the opportunity to learn about the event and voice any concerns. The organization will also be looking for volunteers.

About 800 national and international visitors are expected for the three day event.

Mayor Mike Schmitz will be visiting China next month to encourage more business leaders to come to the symposium.
